to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agreement. we don't have an agreement because they fail to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but, unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unravel other of the obama foreign policy which is making the more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd

issue that came up in the debate is the obama administration's response to the killing of the ambassador in libya as well as three others. on point ryan said that it took the president two weeks to acknowledge the september 01th attack on the benghazi conflict was not part of a protest about a youtube video but was, in fact, a terrorist attack. let's listen to that statement. >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the un, and in his speech at the un, he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detach. guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detach. guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place where we knew that there was an al-qaeda cell with arms. >> okay. joining me now, paul singer, politics editor at "usa today." did it take the president two weeks to acknowledge this was a terror attack on a consulate? >> no. immediately after the event, he did say this was an act of terror. however, the ex

the controversy over why the obama administration initially portrayed the terrorist attack as a spontaneous outbreak. >> why in the heck did it take so long for all these highly briefed and intelligent people to try and figure out that it actually wasn't a 15-minute youtube video. it actually was a 9/11 event, a terrorist attack. >> reporter: state department undersecretary patrick kennedy said there was no pressure to spin the events, scott, not at the state department and not at the white house. >> pelley: thank you, sharyl. president obama's counterterrorism advisor john brennan was in tripoli today. he asked libya's president to help find those who murdered the four americans. elizabeth palmer is in benghazi piecing together for us what happened that night. >> reporter: tomorrow marks one month since two americans died in the smoke and fire of the attack on the u.s. consulate's main building. but about two dozen others escaped that night under armed escort to another house nearby rented by the u.s. government. the americans evacuated from the consulate about a mile away, would have come
the obama administration misled because they were worried about the political considerations of what happened in benghazi? >> you have to ask why as recently as last night. you're asking a judgment about motive. i don't know. as recently as last night the vice president of the united states misled and misinformed the american people who i presume for political purposes. >> you just accused the president of lying to the american people. >> yes. >> the intelligence was unclear. there's an investigation going on. there's no advantage for the administration to mislead the american people on something that's a tragedy like this. >> i wonder how much the voters -- i mean this is an important issue certainly with the administration to be accountable if they made misstatements. how much is this election going to turn on foreign policy. jobs and economy are still the number one issue. this was a pretty fierce debate between biden and ryan. >> on that question, did paul ryan answer the question with respect to the $5 trillion, where those deductions can come from and does the arithmetic work?
with us. before we started our interview, you said the obama administration has to stop the bloodletting or as you said bedwetting. that's the onerous on joe biden tomorrow because the president's performance was not good. >> it wasn't good. not that mitt romney beat president obama -- i'm not sure if he did, but barack obama did not look good last week. what vice president biden has to do is stop the bleeding. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the
: there is no hard evidence that's happened with huawei, but the obama administration has been unwilling to take the risk. two years ago, when it appeared that huawei might land its first big american deal-- a $5 billion contract to build sprint's new 4-g wireless network-- the u.s. government stepped in. >> lewis: you had the secretary of commerce call the c.e.o. of sprint and lay out the u.s. concerns, say that the u.s. was really worried about huawei. and they would be a lot happier if sprint didn't do the deal. >> kroft: and sprint said, "okay." >> lewis: sprint said, "okay." >> kroft: since then, huawei has blanketed u.s. airwaves with commercials, and hired an army of lobbyists and public relations firms to help it get a foothold into the world's largest telecom market. >> lewis: they're determined. they're in it for the long haul. the line that most people think about is, mao had a strategy called "win the countryside, surround the cities, and then the cities will fall." and huawei seems to be following that maoist strategy. >> kroft: in the last couple of years, huawei has managed to ins
in the obama administration how are they prepping vp biden for this and how might he play things differently now as a result? >> there has to be more specific prosecution of the argument against mitt romney calling the romney team out on some of these specifics whether it's on tax cuts or on medicare. i think one of the interesting dynamics to watch in the vice presidential debate is there's a difference between what paul ryan believes and what mitt romney believes and that is on these, on some of these important issues about taxes and health care and medicare. so that's an area where you can imagine vice president biden working to press ryan on the details and the inconsistencies between the two of them. >> really interesting point. thanks so much. >>> coming up in our next half hour, round 2009 the presidential debate and how body language is so important in determining the winner. >>> breaking news from rome. there's a verdict in the trial of pop benedict's former butler. paolo gabriele was convicted this morning of leaking the pope's private papers to a wrournlist. he's been sentenced to
. >>> republican lawmakers pounced on the obama administration over last month's embassy attack in libya. >> we had the correct number of assets in benghazi. >> to start off by saying you had the correct number and o ambassador and three other individuals are dead somehow doesn't seem to ring true to the northwestern people. >> the u.s. anti-doping agency said lance armstrong was at the center of the doping scandal. >> a black bear had a school scrambling. forced a lock down. >> the oakland a's will live another day! can they do it again? he did. >> all that -- >> 15--week-old walrus. >> great another brooklyn hipster with a ridiculous mustache. >> tickle me elmo, tickle me bill moyers, tickle everybody. >> on cbs "this morning." >> larry pushed me to being a great and i hope i pushed him to being a great. >> i guess the message tonight, magic johnson, find somebody to hate. >>> welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm charlie rose in los angeles. norah o'donnell is in new york. new polls show the race between president obama and governor mitt romney is getting tighter. a new quinnipiac university-cbs n

happened in library area does the administration see some vulnerability as to what happened there? >> there is a vulnerability because on the one hand as the obama campaign is saying, romney spoke too soon on libya, the republicans can say the same thing about the administration on libya when susan rice came out and said this was an uprising not a terrorist event. the story has changed since then. so that's something now that the republicans can point to, so there is a bit of a vulnerability. although everybody believes on foreign policy that's far, far secondary to the primary issue of this campaign which is the economy. >> john, i want to ask you about mitt romney and his foreign policy advisers and how he would differ from president obama. there's a piece in "new york times" where he says of mr. romney beyond his critique of president obama failing to show strength of u.s. abroad he has a fractured team of advisers that include warring tribes of neo-conservatives and others. is there a could herren strategy coming from mitt romney on foreign policy or is it a work in progress?
. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. i wrote a book on leadership. you can't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in syria. that's what we saw in libya. that's what we saw in egypt. now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. so the white house, it seems to me, knew that there was real danger to that ambassador. not only didn't they provide the security, it sounds to me like they reduced the security, which is astounding. i'm not sure that's true, but one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's really astounding. >> you saw madeleine albright yesterday call romney's speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> well, i'm sure the former democratic secretary of state would say that. the realit
